» September Recap & Discoveries


My September archive is totally slacking, but I definitely know why. I blinked and the summer was over, and then I blinked again & September was over. What?! Okay. I can explain. I decided to diagnose myself with S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder) because I actually can't explain how the transition from summer to fall makes me feel. And no, it's not the same feeling everyone else gets when they're stoked for "sweater season" and "pumpkin spice everything". VOM.com. Sounds like a lame excuse, I know, but hey, they don't call it a disorder for a reason!

So now that I know what my deal is, I vow to change it. This post is dedicated to wrapping up September and overcoming fall sadness in October. I promise I'll have a ton of fun 'ish for you to learn, read, and do(it yourself). Cheers.

I Can't Believe It's Not Foundation ▸ My Mon-Fri Beauty Drill


True life: I don't wear foundation. As much as that may be a surprise to you, it's even more of a surprise to me when I tell people and I get a SUPER surprised reaction. I first wore foundation in 7th grade, piling bronzer on top of it. This was during the time that digital cameras were so damn cool. Once I entered high school and "looked back" at my pictures, I was absolutely mortified. Aside from the fact that my skin tone fluctuates more than my weight, I'm either afraid to find the perfect match (also fearing that match may not be perfect to others) or just straight up traumatized.

So what do I wear on my face?! Here's my Monday to Friday beauty drill that not only makes me look and feel alive, but is just as important as my morning coffee.

My Dream Closet | Compass x The Beetique

My Dream Closet - The Beetique

It wasn't until recently that I put together a vision of what my dream closet would look like - could it be that I'm so used to teeny tiny closet space? Side note: By no means does the size of my closet reflect the size of my wardrobe. That 'ish is totally packed in! I recently found out about Compass, a new real estate platform based in New York, and was inspired to share my dream closet with you.

Essential Oil DIY :: Lavender Insomnia Spray


I'm super excited to share this DIY post because I know how many people, including a majority of my family and friends, suffer from insomnia every. damn. night. And guess what? There's absolutely no way you could mess this DIY up. Even a three year old couldn't. My DIY Lavender Insomnia Spray not only smells like bedtime heaven, but is so effective that you won't be able to get out of bed in the morning. Snooze button sold separately, of course.

DIY Antique Window x Wedding Quote Display


So many apologies for being MIA all week! I've been traveling and crafting away because my beautiful friend finally said 'I do' to the love of her life this past weekend. EVERYTHING - from the invitations, to the theme, to the venue.... was nothing short of magical. I was recruited to make these adorable personalized wedding party glasses as a gift for her bridal shower, and went home with another project to show off on their special day. I'm super impressed at how fab it came out, and I couldn't wait any longer to show you how easy it was!
